Abstract

This paper deals with automated production lines composed of multiple machines in series interconnected by a common and automatic transfer mechanism. The automated production line is dedicated to manufacturing a specific product type. The transfer mechanism and production machines are subject to random operation dependent failures. The automated transfer mechanism has a non-negligible transfer time. The purpose of this paper is to propose new analytical formulations to assess the steady-state availability and the throughput of such production lines. Based on several production line configurations, and compared to simulation results, the paper proves first the exactness and the robustness of the proposed models. The paper also shows the impact of the transfer mechanism operational, reliability, and maintainability parameters on the overall performance of automated production lines.
